Spotted Ladybug

Model by Robert J. Lang.

A pretty beetle model with reverse-colored head and spots.

This great-looking model has reverse-colored spots of which you can create more or less (up to 17 spots). The bottom of the model is very tidy because of the pockets that hide the base of the legs.

Folding tips

  • Step 20 requires a sort of outside reverse fold, to get the paper over the angle of the inner triangle.
  • During step 24, it helps to loosen or unfold some of the previous steps to get the layer wrapped over itself.

Paper & size

A thinner paper is recommended, as this is a very thick model.

This model becomes 10.5cm long and 11cm wide when folded from a 35cm square. Depending on the thickness of your paper, this model also has some height due to the many layers used for the sides and legs.
